Last year, the British electorate voted to leave the European Union. As a result, the British Government invoked Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union, setting a two-year timeframe for the UK to leave the EU by 2019.
Brexit has become one of the great uncertainties of our times. No one has tried to leave the EU before and negotiation of the terms of British withdrawal are complex.
Her Excellency Menna Rawlings CMG, British High Commissioner to Australia, will explore the vision of Britain after Brexit.
